I was involved in arranging speakers for, and chairing, the most recent of the Lifelong Learning Centre’s seminar series, the Business Ethics seminar last Thursday (14th March). Previous seminars have been well attended and received positive feedback; as this was the first time I played such an active role I felt I had some tough acts to follow. Thankfully, I am pleased to report that the seminar was a tremendous success.
I was extremely fortunate to be able to arrange two speakers, Dr Jamie Dow (Lecturer, Inter-Disciplinary Ethics Applied, University of Leeds) who spoke on ‘The ethics of advertising’ and Dr Rafaqut Rashid (GP Partner and GP Executive Member of Bradford City Clinical Commissioning Group) who delivered a session on ‘The debate surrounding the ethics of resource allocation in health care’.
The delegates included our Business Management students, other University students, alumni, staff and members of the public. The speakers encouraged the delegates to take an active role in the sessions, and this received very positive praise when feedback was collected at the end of the evening. Comments included “Just wonderful and informative, both speakers were thought provoking”. The only suggestion for improvement was to make the seminar longer, and this has encouraged me to increase the number of seminars for the next series.
